We are very excited to announce the dates for the 4th Annual Hockey for Grace Tournament & Charity Social happening April 4th & 5th, 2020. We are so happy to once again be hosting the Tournament at Newmarket’s NTR and the Charity Social at the Newmarket Optimist Club. More details about both events will be posted shortly.
Today we’re sharing the final reason for Hockey For Grace. Awareness. To start a conversation about Pregnancy & Infant Loss.
Did you know that 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in a loss? We didn’t. It’s a staggering fact and one we didn’t hear through any of my pregnancy until we were 1 of those 4.
So many have personally been through a loss. A miscarriage, a stillbirth, a loss after birth. They all matter. They all hurt. As soon as you start trying, as soon as you see those pink lines on a pregnancy test, you start dreaming, you start planning, you start loving. Yet when a loss happens so many stay silent.
Hockey for Grace would not be possible without the generous support of our community sponsors. These companies step up and have made a financial contribution to not only make this tournament and charity social possible but to assist in helping us reach our goal of raising $25,000 this year for Emily’s House. We are so absoutley greatful for their generosity and support. Please show them some love by giving them a “like” on Facebook, a “follow” on Instagram and check out their website to see the great services they provide.
PLEASE NOTE THAT BOTH THE REC AND COMPETITIVE DIVISIONS ARE NOW FULL EMAIL HOCKEYFORGRACE@GMAIL.COM TO GO ON THE WAIT-LIST
Join us Saturday April 6th and Sunday April 7th for the 3rd Annual Hockey For Grace Tournament in support of Emily’s House Children’s Hospice at Newmarket’s National Training Rinks.
AND THE GRAND TOTAL IS… $22,438.00!
It is not too often that we are speechless, especially Chris, but when we hit the total button and this number popped up we were both truly speechless.
